Ok, so I have moved my computer and associated peripherals into a new room in the house. All is hunky dory apart from with the room lights on, TrackIR (version one) has trouble keeping up with my reflective dots. It never did in the other room, so I'm presuming it's something to do with reflections/light strength or summat.

Anyways, it works fine with just a desklamp on, however playing in the semi-darkness for ages gives me eyestrain, hence I'm casting about for active sources.

Anybody running an LED or something who can give a quick recommendation?

In the meantime, I'm going to try moving some furniture/changing the direction of the lights in my room.

Cheers, SSS

Make sure you have no pictures with glass or shinny frames behind you. Or where the TIR unit can see a reflection of light from it. I play with no lights on at night, and curtains drawn during the day to avoid it. The wife just won't let me get rid of her stuff. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif In my sig there is a link on my aproach.
